Re: Are you doing enough to fight the gun grab?

Won’t go on about that, it will only raise my B.P. Every one needs t...

If your are from around Brussels, try some of the hunters in Clinton. They are familiar with home butchers that do a great job. I hang mine in the garage for a day or two depends on the temperature. Ask to go watch. After that you should have a good idea on how to do it yourself. Take time to make s...

Applied for mine on March 1 as well. Mark it on my OFAH calendar when I get it in the fall for next year(2015). Hopefully I will not end up doing any thing really dumb like I did last year the day before bow season. :oops: Really hard to shoot a bow with one hand. Any one hear if there are extra bow...

Re: Deer hunter questionaire
